What is your idea of perfect happiness?
All the necessities of life taken care of:  clean water, have a family, be able to sustain my family, be able to move if I want to and not be stuck in one place, healthy/body mind…I don’t need riches, just a simple house.  I always give away money if I have something extra, I’d rather give 10 and keep 10 then have 20 to myself.

What is your favorite activity outside of work?
Listening to music on computer, letter writing, reading novels

What is your favorite music?
Ugandan gospel, American gospel, Meditative Yoga music

A Nigerian author called Okwankwa, writes both fiction and non-fiction

What talent would you most like to have?
Singing.  I would be very happy if a child of mine could sing well.

Where would you most like to live?
The USA, land of freedom, at least that’s the way it is perceived here in Uganda.  Suppression in Uganda is still everywhere, and corruption is still a very big problem.  I like the idea that everyone is listened to equally in the US.

Nelson Mandela.  He is the perfect ideal of a man in power after being through so much.

What is your favorite website?
I use yahoo for my email and sometimes I read interesting headlines that grab me.

Mississippi Burning. I could watch that movie 100 times and I never get bored.

All the friendships I’ve made with people, organizations, and friends
